    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Definitely recommend because in this class students are able to learn how to write a research paper and given other essay assignments.Also, students read many texts and answer questions about them. Youll less likely be given tests other than a midterm and the final. Raise your hand and visit the professors office often when you don't understand something. They actually look up to that. Oh, and when you have a draft, visit the writing center to have your paper prooread and corrected on mistakes. This is important for you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the writing process of the Modern Language Association and research paper outline. I learned to annotate in the readings and how to use correct punctuation and grammar when writing a sentence. I learned to write a compare and contrast essay, an essay about ourselves, and strong paragraphs. Til this day, Im able to do this by following the writing process!!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate because the professor counts this and turn your work on time unless there's been something in between that disturbed you and couldnt go to class that day! Everyone's study skills is different, so find the best study skill that suits you and go to tutoring if you need help to start on a paper even if for you it isn't difficult. Let the professor know what you don't understand, don't hesitate!!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I learned so much about essay writing that I will continue to use throughout my life. In this course we also talked about important controversial subjects that appear in every day life like whether certain drugs should be legalized, racism in modern society and how the growing use of technology is causing the isolation of people.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of mine was doing the final research paper because it required a lot of research and I liked learning about my topic. I research the pro's and con's of legalizing marijuana both medicinally and recreationally and I learned a lot by writing this paper.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell them to plan out their essays before writing them and to take good notes on the subject they'll be writing about.
